This week we had Chris Spooner, SVP Finance at Rubicon join the Bowery Capital Startup Sales Podcast to share his experience as a buyer from organizations like Chainalysis, MongoDB, Footlocker, and Ladders.

Topics include:

  • How to enable your champion to go get a "yes" and not a "go do more work"
  • The art of blind calendar invites, do's and don'ts
  • A cold call that actually worked and why it worked


Big thank you to Chris for coming on the podcast and sharing his insights with us!
